With blissful surrounds, Belimbla Park, The Oaks, Oakdale, Nattai, Burragorang and Yerranderie are gorgeous areas to take in the scenery and set some time aside to relax.
The Oaks offers a great little cluster of shops and is the perfect place to stretch out amongst the peaceful backdrop over a cup of your favourite coffee. The Oaks features many churches and historical stops such as The Convent, St Matthew’s, St Luke’s Anglican and St Aloysius. The Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum is perfect for visitors whether you’re a history buff or simply captivated by the charm of the local area.
Nattai is home to the Nattai National Park, a beautiful retreat and protected area famous for its flora and fauna, and home to a number of Australian native animals. There are a number of hiking tracks to explore and take in the spectacular sights. Close by is the Burragorang Valley which makes up a large portion of the World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains National Park. The Burragorang lookout offers stunning views over Nattai National Park, the Blue Mountains and Kanangra-Boyd National Park. Best enjoyed over a picnic!
Yerranderie, lost and forgotten, in the Lower Blue Mountains is surrounded by wilderness. It is a nature lover’s and bushwalker’s mecca. The Yerranderie Silver Mine Village, also known as Yerranderie Private Town, is one of the most authentically preserved ghost towns in NSW. The village can be accessed via the 4 wheel-drive Oberon Colong historic route through unsealed trails and wilderness of the Blue Mountains National Park. Visitors can camp among the kangaroos and explore the heritage of days gone by in the unique village. The whole family will love it.
